Perhaps you have heard, but there is a woman who has alleged that Joe Biden committed sexual harassment of her. Word is that she is actually trying to take this to court. I myself have no opinion one way or the other. I’ve contended in the past that we shouldn’t just automatically believe or disbelieve anyone without a thorough investigation, but there is a group of people who one would expect would see things a little differently, i.e. the Democratic establishment and Twitter checkmarks. However, it doesn’t surprise me in the slightest that not only do they not believe her, they are actively going out of their way not to.
I’ve already talk about this in the past, so I won’t retread old ground. Though I did see an article about how #BelieveAllWomen is now a conservative smear that was used against liberal women. That was some of the most adorable mental gymnastics ever. I wonder how long that article will be up before it’s pulled, if it hasn’t been already. Still, the lengths that the media has gone to in order to smear Tara Reade is frankly kind of pathetic, when these are the same people who were cheering from the hills that the UVA Rape Hoax was legit, even as the case reported in Rolling Stone was falling apart. They are also the same ones who tore Brett Kavanaugh to pieces in their smearing of him. The Democrats REALLY overplayed their hand there.
However, it seems that the Democratic establishment and Twitter checkmarks have decided to take another mainstay of liberal discourse and throw it out the window – fat shaming. Today, Nancy Pelosi decided to rail on Trump taking Hydroxychloroquine, pointing out that he is “morbidly obese.” Like most times that that dinosaur harpy opens her mouth, the Twitter checkmarks had to pile on and make themselves heard being in absolutely solidarity with that moderate conservative bitch. A fact that just tickles me pink. All of the wonder about Nancy Pelosi does. The woman passes every bill conservatives send to her, then crushes everything that would help progressives. Her latest COVID-19 relief bill (that will NEVER pass the Senate) is basically a giant birthday-present to major corporations, with a little money to help the regular people. How ANYONE thinks this cunt is a liberal is beyond me. But Fox News says it, so I guess it must be true.
The endless stream of double-standards continues. I can’t wait to see what “liberal” media publishes to bolster insulting the weight of someone they don’t like. These people are at least self-aware enough to know when they are being mocked for sounding two-faced. It will be the usual mental gymnastics unlike anything one has seen in a very long time, but that’s business as usual in America. Don’t think that conservative America gets off the hook on this. Some of their stuff is just the best.
Perhaps you haven’t heard about the fact that America has been quarantining for some time now. Well, it seems that conservative America is getting tired of that and has decided to make the activity of doing what’s best for the health and safety of this country into a political battle. The most notable of these has been the armed Semper Pie protestors in Michigan getting their guns and marching on the state capitol, screaming for the Governor to be locked up. If it honestly becomes a civil war in this country over something like the quarantine because of this plague that is ravaging this country, that would genuinely make me laugh.
Among the many genuinely hilarious posters at these events is my favorite – where a conservative actually says, “my body, my choice.” I swear, the day is going to come that conservative America will be self-aware. It will happen. The complete lack of introspection to that is the best. So all the women who are forced to raise a child they don’t want because of lack of abortion options? Fuck those whores. She should have kept her legs closed. Being kept in your home to keep people safe from the plague? Tyranny! We must rise up and stop the tyranny of not being a dick! This is like what the Nazis did! Ah yes, the old line that is now ubiquitous to both sides of the political aisle – compare everything that they don’t like to Nazis.
Don’t even get me starting about the people bitching about having to wear a mask in certain stores, most notably Costco. The same fucking people who bitched ad nauseum about businesses being able to deny gay people their business if they don’t want to serve them are now bitching about not being able to go into a store. Seems that their precious “freedom” only matters when it is being them inconvenienced. Funny how that works.
It has long been my contention that if America didn’t have double-standards, it would have no standards at all. It shouldn’t be shocking that people in this country are so quick to abandon the values they claim to hold so dear, in the name of their political pet project. Claim that believing all women is essential, and that making fun of someone for their weight is the most hurtful thing one can do? The orange man bad! So those values can go. Say that women have no right to their body when it comes to raising a child they don’t want? I was told to stay inside! That’s so much worse! Rise up, with guns!
Lest anyone say that I am some kind of centrist, I am liberal as fuck. I believe that we need a regulated economy, a strong social safety net, to tax the wealthiest and close the tax loopholes that the corporations who have been given OBSCENE amounts of money with COVID-19 relief use to pay nothing back, and to have universal healthcare (something the ENTIRE 1st world has, but for some reason America just can’t handle). There are some libertarian arguments that conservative America floats that I don’t oppose offhand. I am part of the libertarian-left. Still, when people like myself think that both sides look REALLY stupid with this shit, it’s not uncommon to have one side accuse you of being the political belief they don’t like. Funny how that works, right?
It is exhausting watching political discourse anymore. On the one hand, I have Democrats who are suffering horribly from Trump Derangement Syndrome who don’t care that Biden OBVIOUSLY has dementia and should be getting care for his affliction. They don’t care that he has no political positions. I saw this great Twitter post asking people to list three policy positions Biden has that they agree with. Without a doubt, here was one of the first replies –
- Not Trump
2. Not Trump
3. Not Trump
On the other side, you have these crazy/stupid conservative Cult of Trump types who had to be told by Lysol not to drink bleach when Trump said that injecting bleach into your body should clean it from COVID-19. Oh I’m sorry, that was a joke. Trump said so, so it must be true. Watch the video clip where he says that. Does it sound like he was joking to you? The guy is an idiot, talking about his “super duper missile.” I can’t even write that without breaking out into giggles. The dude speaks like he’s five, and people can do nothing but talk about what a manly man he is. Who runs away from an Asian reporter woman and her question. The dude is such a little bitch, but he’s the manliest man who has ever lived.
Where does it end? Where does any of this end? I don’t know, and the longer it goes on, the less I care. It’s all exhausting, and I’m content to play my vidya and talk to my girlfriend on Facetime.
